Link seems OK now.
I thought that problem had been resolved but maybe it's still happening to the odd thread. I'll try to find out what's happening with that too.

Are you planning on repairing the automatically subscribe when you post in a thread feature?

I wasn't aware that this stopped working?

Most threads i reply to i have to manually subscribe, and when i forget i miss replies unless someone quotes me and i get an e-mail so then i am reminded to go and manually subscribe.
I don't know how many threads i was never subscribed to and have missed replies to.

In another world
When I open the notifications section in my PC, the first page shows all new notifications in a coloured row. But as soon as I open the second page, all those coloured rows are gone, so it's hard for me to distinguish which ones are the new notifications I haven't read and which ones I have.

I followed this link for the first few pages but haven't since. Now I see it's 19 pages long and an issue I have had since the beginning isn't fixed (for me at least). I apologize if this issue is buried somewhere in this thread but whenever I select the "New Posts" link I get a list with over 1000 threads none of which are highlighted. Is there something I need to do to get this to work?

The top pagination on mobile was a bug as these should have been hidden. I've seen positive feedback about having them at the top too so I'm checking to see if we can bring it back or not.

You can also look at the time stamp on the notification to see when it came in. Do you often have more than a page worth of new notifications between when you check the notifications page?

The only change we've done to that page is fixing blank titles. That page shows a list of threads with the most recent posting activity across the entire site. What highlighting are you expecting to see here?

Bringing them back would be greatly appreciated. I have my settings set at the maximum allowed posts per page and having to scroll to the bottom on each thread on mobile doesn't work well.

I like having it at the top too so hopefully I'll have some good news to share soon.

I like using the shading difference (which is WAY too slight) to tell which notifications I have read or not since I may not have clicked on all of them (it seems to know if you have already visited that post in another tab directly through reading the posts from the forums instead of clicking from the notifications.

It would be nicer if they didn't clear until you clicked them or chose to clear them all (like an inbox).

Imagine you had many notifications since last visit but you don't know what day/time your last visit was. How far back on page 2 are you supposed to keep checking? The date/time stamps aren't helpful unless you personally have kept track of your last time of checking the notifications ... which is what the highlighting does for you -- until it all goes away in one single click and then it's lost :)

I agree it's an issue. Whether clicking to page 2, or just returning to notifications without hitting "back", all the highlights are gone.
